I'm a bit concerned about making a decision yet. I didn't notice any
responses to questions I raised
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2006JanMar/0440.html. I
could live with deleting the SC if it's true that it's completely
covered by timeout. But not all the techniques that map to 3.2.5
http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Crit
erion_3.2.5 have also been mapped to a timeout SC. Those techniques have
been accepted by the group. If we believe all those techniques can
reasonably be mapped to something under 2.2, then I could see removing
it; otherwise, I think we're being too hasty. I think it's a stretch to
map some of those techniques, so at least for the moment I continue to
believe we should not remove the SC.

OK

 

Seems like timeout would cover it anyway if it were a problem.

	You could.  But, I haven't seen this much in the real world,
except in response to user action (Iike clicking a button).  As long as
it's in response to user action, I don't think it's an accessibility
problem.  I just don't think it's common enough to qualify as a "common"
failure.

	Couldn't you do it in script?  Or Flash?  Or Director?
Applets?

		At least for HTML, the only ways I know of to "create a
complete change of main content through an automatic refresh" are to use
meta-refresh or script.  Both can be disabled in browsers.  Are there
other technologies that have these issues?  If so, we could create a
general technique about it.  If not, then I don't think this is a common
failure for HTML, and I propose that we delete it.
